11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / hot pink purse on: May 06, 2005 09:43:23 AM
I made this out of some fabric I found at evil Walmart for $1 a yard.  I cut a 10"X8.5" rectangle out of both the pink fabric and the black hearty fabric, stacked em together and cut a diagonal piece out of them.  I then sewed the diagonal pieces onto the "wrong" fabric.  I based the construction on the lined zipper tute and added a strap and an inside pocket.  My grandmother-in-law just asked me to make her one!  lol

Here it is full of stuff and standing on it's own, this is the front.



Here is the back.



Here it is open so you can see the pocket and the flannel stipe lining.

12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: turning classic nintendo screenshot into cross stitch pattern? on: April 27, 2005 02:17:13 PM

Crucial question: Classic Nintendo displays at 72 pixels per inch (I think). How big is a cross stitch ex?

It depends on what fabric you use.  Most beginners start with 14, but you could try 28 to keep the finished product smaller.  It's been so long since I've cross stitched, but if I remember right 14 means 14 stitches (X's) per inch and 28 is 28 stitches per inch.  But now that I say it, I'm not sure.  It comes in many other sizes but those are the only ones I worked with.

Here's a little tip for ya to use next time you don't have an ironing board.  Fold up a bath towel 3 or 4 times and put it under what you are ironing.  It will absorb most of the heat from the iron.  I learned this trick from my mom years ago and I use it all the time cuz I have no room for an ironing board.
14  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Kenmore 3/4 Mini-Ultra on: April 27, 2005 05:34:50 AM
I have this machine and it has been working great for me.  I got it free and used from my grandmother-in-law and was a littile worried at first if it would be able to stand up to the abuse I give sewing machines but it has been pumping along nicely for quite a while now.  I would say it is a great machine for a part time sewer.  It is relatively cheap and I havnt broken mine yet, so it is pretty tough.

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / second ever knitting project: teddy bear! on: April 26, 2005 08:43:09 AM
After finishing a boring scarf, I decided I needed more of a challenge.  I am a long time crocheter and recently taught myself to knit.  I can't believe how easy it is!  So here is my bear.  He's ugly but that makes him cute.  He is made of Bernat's Denim Style yarn in Stonewash (blue) and Canvas (white).  I got the pattern from http://www.sullivans.net

I love the orange mesh-look one.  What is it made of?  It looks shiny, so vinyl?  Good job on all of them   Grin
